We took 6 teenagers on a over night trip to Jefferson and stayed at the Jefferson Inn because it was reported to be haunted.When we arrived my first impression was that the furnishing were pretty worn and dated.My room wasn't very clean either.There were no coffee pots in the room and it was up to the customer to fix it down stairs.The walking ghost tour was fun and the guide told our kids that our room was one of the most haunted in the hotel.Around 11 or so several guest in their 70's were walking around with their ghost gadgets saying they were getting great ghost readings.This was all really fun until our kids wouldn't go to bed because they were scared.They were not being unusually loud but everything creaks in that old place.One of the men down the hall knocked on our door verbally attacking us.I would have gone to the desk clerk but the are not there in the evening.If you are the only person who booked for that night you are all alone until morning.I just don't feel like this is safe.Uf you are looking for a romantic weekend this isn't the place to go.If this had just been my husband and myself,I wouldn't have stayed there.
